Why are Shower Enclosures Better than Shower Curtains?

Shower curtains are on their way out, with most people now opting for enclosures instead. There’s a good reason why people across the country are making the switch, even if it sometimes turns out to be a little more expensive. The truth is that enclosed showers are better looking, nicer to use, and easier to clean.

More Attractive

Using a glass or plastic enclosure instead of a bulky shower curtain completely opens up your bathroom. Instead of having a part of the room shielded, an enclosure creates a smooth, unbroken look which perfectly complements modern design styles.
Of course, you can always pick up a better looking or more expensive shower curtain, but they’re inherently unattractive items to hang in your bathroom, so you’ll be far better off going for an enclosure instead. Also, when you come to sell the home, it’s not like a more upscale look is going to drive down the asking price.

Much Cleaner

One of the problems which people often talk about when it comes to shower enclosures is that they can tend to get a little streaky, which means you’ll need to clean it more frequently. Well, there’s no denying that this is the case, but doing a weekly clean will leave you with a shining enclosure which is free of grime or limescale.
Have you ever noticed how much dirt and mould builds up on a shower curtain, and how stained the bottom of one can become? You won’t have those problems when you buy an enclosed shower. Just a quick wipe down, and it’s good as new.

Less Claustrophobic     

Just as an enclosure makes a shower nicer to look at, it also makes showering itself feel more relaxing. That’s because you won’t feel trapped behind the curtain, making the room feel more open, and yourself feel less cut-off. Also, there are few things quite as annoying as trying to sooth yourself after a long day, and finding the shower curtain trying to wrap itself around you. Avoid the discomfort and inconvenience by installing a shower enclosure. There are a great range of options out there for enclosed showers, whether you’re looking to screen off part of a bath, or need a freestanding unit. Whichever you require, you’ll appreciate the difference immediately.
